In Search of America: Sidney Robertson Cowell in Ireland in 1955-1956


This article discusses the American folk music collector and ethnomusicologist Sidney Robertson Cowell (1903-1995). It considers the work she conducted in Ireland in 1955 and 1956 in light of her twenty-one-year career from 1936 to 1957, during which she collected in America, Canada, Iran, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Malaysia. It investigates how her interest in the question of the identity of American music influenced her work.
